    Alright, all the footage is up, I hope some of you will enjoy this little "nostalgia voyage". :):tup:


    So, why am I doing this?

    1. I have a lot of spare time. :lol:

    2. This is my favourite GT.

    3. I am quite nostalgic.

    4. I discovered some very rare footage on my gaming DVD's, which you can't find on the internet, at least not on youtube, and I thought I would share some nostalgia with some of you.



    Let us start with the oldest footage available.


    This is a techdemo of the game, called GT2000 back then, as the game was supposed to release in 2000, which, as we know, didn't happen. You can clearly see that it's basically an up-resed GT2, with GT1 like physics.



    Here is the first publicaly showen version:



    Here is a slightly more advanced code of the game:




    This is a video with a side by side comparison, showing the back then excisting option to choose physics models "racing" and "drifting".



    This video shows also a rather old code, only some little scenes, it's a mix of various PS2 games in their early stage development:



    A gameplay demo by me with a code, which probably comes from 2000. -part 1 Notice the still excisting option to choose between racing and drift, which eventually didn't make the cut as we know. (Or did it?) Also, you were able to zoom in on the cars in the car menu, pretty neat little detail. The physics seemed still very GT2'ish and the handling was very indirect.



    A gameplay demo by me with a code, which probably comes from 2000. -part 2



    ECTS2000 Trailer, showing more close to the final build trailer.



    An almost final code:



    Here the definatly final build:


    Developers of Polyphony talking about how they used Maya to model the cars and environments:


    And finally a big 4 part GT3 special, after the game has been finished and released with a lot of insight, enjoy:

    It is, it is. In some ways better than GT5.

    Wow, it's always nice to see how the development of a game started as and progressed. IMO the GT2000/GT2001 looked like it could of been interesting.

    Too bad the old 60's Skyline didn't make the cut.

    I have an old tech demo disc that came with the first versions of the FAT PS2., in that tech demo, along with several playable demos, videos and other stuff, there's a GT3 video with the original version of "Just A Day" by Feeder.
    One of the footage that comes to mind, is a Toyota GT-One sliding on the grass, and you can see the front section of the car with holes next to the front tyres, where in the final version of GT3 this wholes were covered.

    I also have the very same tech demo disc with that voyager video, only longer and with more footage of more games. Wish I had the equipment to capture the video in a good quality. I'll see what I can do...

    Here's a "clearer" look on the tech game. Here, you can see the difference between the "Drift" and "Racing" selections. (Reason I don't embed it: so you can put it up there. Looks like someone has done their homework:p:bowdown::cheers:)

    Thx for the vids but I think I can't use the commercials, I already have a video for the finished code, that's enough I think, I just wanted to show the graphical progress.

    Thank you again.

    I'm considering to share information regarding GT2000 in a beta-sharing forum. :)

    It's great how the way the game looked when it was finished compared to when it was first being designed.

    Absolutly. I remember how people were saying that not even GT on PS2 can look better than Dreamcast games and then, about a year later PD goes balls out and releases the best looking video game OF ALL TIME. I couldn't believe my eyes every time I saw a new build of the game, the graphics looked to good to be true but in reality they were even better haha.

    Gran Turismo 3 is still awesome (why wouldn't I like it with the profile picture I have? LOL), espicially since it was, first of all, basically the last GT with the perfect semi-sim or sim-cade driving style I love to death, but these pics and videos are wonderful. Great stuff.
    :cheers:
